TASS, April 28. North and South Korea have agreed to declare the end of the Korean war this year, the Kyodo news agency reported on Saturday citing the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).
The KCNA published a text of the Panmunjeom Declaration after the summit between the South and North Korean leaders, Moon Jae-in and Kim Jong-un, on Friday.
The document earlier published by the South Korean side said that the North and the South planned to sign a peace treaty, but did not name a particular date.
"South and North Korea agreed to actively pursue trilateral meetings involving the two Koreas and the United States, or quadrilateral meetings involving the two Koreas, the United States and China with a view to declaring an end to the War, turning the armistice into a peace treaty, and establishing a permanent and solid peace regime," the document said.
According to the North Korean news agency, both sides will pursue a common goal of achieving a complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
After the summit, Kim Jong-un did not make any statements on giving up the nuclear program. The North Korean mass media do not usually use the term "complete denuclearization."
On Friday, the South Korean and North Korean leaders, Moon Jae-in and Kim Jong-un, met in the border village of Panmunjeom for a historic summit, the first in more than a decade. The two leaders signed the joint "Panmunjeom Declaration for Peace, Prosperity and Unification of the Korean Peninsula".
